I recently had the pleasure of staying at AnCasa Hotel, and it was an experience to remember. Right from the moment I entered my room, I was impressed by its cleanliness, comfort, and spaciousness. The hotel staff were incredibly kind and went above and beyond to assist in any way they could. The facilities were top-notch; I was particularly grateful for the surau they provided. Plus, their luggage storage service was a lifesaver for me. I would wholeheartedly recommend AnCasa Hotel to anyone looking for a seamless and delightful stay.

Compact hotel with clean room. Located in strategic place next to china town, Petaling street and central market. No need to worry to get hungry. There's famous nasi kandar beside the hotel which open 24 hrs. But the most important things is that this hotel has very helpful staff. Price? Not many RMY would leave your wallet :)

I like staying at this hotel. The location is very strategic, near the train station, bus terminal, central market, various cafes and restaurants, Merdeka Square, Petaling, Jamik Mosque, and more places for sightseeing. The hotel staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, the breakfast menu is limited but quite good for just breakfast, because there are lots of cafes and restaurants around the hotel.

About

Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur is a bustling, popular tourist spot based at its marketplace known as Petaling Street. In the olden days, when Malaysia was still known as Tanah Melayu or Malaya, the Chinese had come and settled in this country working as tin miners. However, during the Selangor Civil War, several tin mines were temporarily abandoned. The mines were flooded when the Chinese returned after the war. Hence, it is said that Yap Ah Loy, an influential Chinese figure had opened a tapioca mill on Petaling Street in his effort persuading the Chinese to stay on. This event had given the name “Chee Cheong Kai” meaning ‘Starch Factory Street’. Since then onwards, Petaling Street has been given a facelift and the Chinese community continue its legacy of Chinatown heritage and soul.
